MORE STUDIES REQUIRED: RED LEGGED FROGS
Federal and state guidelines require us to survey for the presence of RED LEGGED FROGS, an
endangered species, and also require us to conduct a complete Biological Assessment. These
two surveys are costly and time consuming. Presently the ALLIANCE is funding the RED
LEGGED FROG survey, see the photos in the Gallery and on our facebook page!

SEVERE EROSION continues…COMMUNITY SUPPORT grows…
Many local organizations sent letters of support to JLLA, making a case for remediation of the
severe erosion and silt load created by the inadequate and broken outlet system at the base of the dam. JLLA is in the process of petitioning the SF Bay Joint Venture for adoption of the project.
Sonoma Birding, Sonoma Land Trust, Sonoma Mountain Preservation, Sonoma Ecology Center
and Assemblyman Jared Huffman all voiced strong concern and support for the correction of the
outflow at the lake.
CORE SAMPLES of DAM reveal type of concrete and filler used to construct the dam and
indicate remortaring will strengthen the dam. This report was required by DPR and funded by
donations to JLLA.
See photos of the core sampling in the Gallery and on our facebook page!
